              Two antique cars, a few old mates and the journey of a lifetime. Take a couple of vintage cars and their owners' determination to drive them on a pilgrimage from Australia to Finland and you have a fascinating story told through photos and the distillation of blogs and diary entr...ies by some foolhardy, adventurous blokes. Starting out from Thailand, their travels took them through Laos, China, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Russia and Finland - a six-month journey spread over two legs in successive years. Told in an engaging, self-deprecating and personal style, the reader enters the journey, every step of the way: following the ancient Silk Road route into the mountains of south-west and western China and the Tibetan Plateau where Muslim and Buddhist communities have lived for centuries, through the '-stans', and beyond. Many an adventure, impossibly sticky situations, near misses and regular mechanical breakdowns were inevitably resolved with the support and civility towards this motley group of travellers in their ancient cars, by locals renowned for their hospitality. Nothing was ever too much trouble. They had no sponsor, no professional photographer or filmmaker, no journalist to publish the story, no 'name' to add fame and celebrity, no contract in the pocket for a coffee table book with quality photos and deep, or informed historical and cultural insights, and no travelling mechanical workshop. There was just a determination to get each of these old cars to Helsinki in one piece and smell the roses along the way. A must-read for men (and women) who dream ...

              Mother, wife, partner, daughter, sister, niece, grandmother: every woman is a VICTRESS in her own unique and special way. This book is an ode to some of Australia's most cherished female athletes who, not just through achievements in their chosen sport, but through their unwaveri...ng conviction and commitment to women's sport, blazed a trail for their sisterhood. From legends like Dawn Fraser and Cathy Freeman, to the new breed of powerful sportswomen like Ellyse Perry, Tayla Harris and Ash Barty, each athlete is honoured and celebrated, thanks to Hobart Hurricanes Women's Big Bash League cricketer Corinne Hall's unique artistic talents. Inspired by these incredible women, Corinne takes readers on a journey into the lives of each athlete through both her stunning drawings and her authentic tales. From personal interactions with the athletes, to recalling where she was when watching some of the iconic events that made them household names, Corinne provides a fresh but relatable perspective on how each has left an indelible mark on the exponential growth of sport for women. Kindness is key for Corinne, who has ensured funds from the book will be directed back into grassroots women's cricket, along with helping charitable organisation, The Kindness Factory, spread its positive message. In keeping with the kindness theme, athletes have provided their own stories of kindness, unearthing the special role simple acts have played in their lives.

              The Anzacs 100 Years On: in story and song
               

              The Anzacs 100 Years On: in story and song (Hardback)

              The Anzacs: 100 Years On in Story and Song is a unique contribution to the commemoration of the centenary of the Anzacs. Ted Egan weaves personal stories and songs into a highly readable history of the Anzacs and the two nations, with amusing anecdotes and tales of great courage ...and ingenuity serving to leaven somewhat the brutal truth exposed, of a tragic and senseless war. The soldiers, nurses, politicians, wives, and the mothers who lost their sons, or welcomed them home severely damaged, all feature in this book and its songs. Egan's stories and poignant songs infuse the facts with the pain and loss (of life and innocence) and suffering that this war created both on the battlefields and in every Australian and New Zealand home. Listening to the songs is an unmissable, profoundly illuminating experience - you cannot fail to feel deeply and viscerally every chapter of this historical period, as if you were there - the excitement of the big adventure, the horrendous reality, the ultimate betrayal by the leaders of the day, the grim legacy of the aftermath for so many. The loss of innocence. Ted Egan deplores the war, but in this book and songs, he salutes the spirit of the Anzacs - their blind impulsive bravery, their irrepressible larrikinism and steadfast loyalty to their mates that created heroes from these volunteers and conscripts.

              Forged with Flames

              As the Ash Wednesday bushfires raged around her in a small Victorian town in February 1983, a young mother stood between her two young daughters and the massive fireball heading straight for them... Ann tells her dramatic story with candour and disarming humour beginning with... her working-class childhood growing up in a village in Lancashire, England. Her fateful decision to marry the young Australian from Melbourne took her to the other side of the world for the adventure of a life time. Twelve years later, her peaceful family life was shattered. This story takes us far beyond the drama of Ash Wednesday. Her reflections and insights are profoundly illuminating and inspirational. This is a story about living and loving, about hope and determination, about facing your worst demons and staring them down. The bushfires that ripped through Victoria and South Australia on Ash Wednesday in 1983 killed 75 people. It was a deadly reminder to the tens of thousands who had moved out of the cities about how dangerous living in the bush could be. As the bushfires raged around her in the small Victorian town of Upper Beaconsfield, a young mother stood between her two young daughters and the massive fireball heading straight for them. Ann Fogarty sustained burns to 85% of her body and was left with horrendous injuries, giving her almost no chance of survival. Unbelievably, her daughters were unscathed. Ann Fogarty's story is one of courage, love and, ultimately, extraordinary resilience. She dedicates the book to her two daughters, Sarah and Rachel, describing them as 'my two wonderful reasons for fighting so hard.' And fight is what Ann has had to do, every day, for the last thirty years, since her life was forever changed in the Ash Wednesday fires of February 1983. Forged with Flames will leave you astounded and amazed at what a human being can endure and withstand. Heralded as a hero, Forged with Flames is the account of Ann's remarkable fight for life

              This is a gripping, previously untold story, which throws a chill light on the secrets and lies that flourish in the fertile soil of dehumanising beliefs and practices - in this case in the Islamic Republic of Iran. This is a memoir by Sydney-based doctor and writer/translator, K...ooshyar Karimi, who in 2000 managed to flee, with his family, escaping certain torture and death which stalked him on a daily basis in his native Iran. Karimi's sin was his Jewishness and the fact that he helped desperate girls and women, who had been raped, terminate the resulting pregnancies. Kooshyar Karimi is a father, a doctor, a writer, and translator. In 1998, he is kidnapped from the streets, blindfolded, and tortured. When he is eventually released, it is only as a spy for the Islamic Secret Service. This is the story of his survival.
